IUB sources of emergency funding
- Emergency fund to assist IUB Biology graduate students
The IUB Biology Emergency Fund is open to graduate students with a declared major from IUB Biology and who are in critical “financial emergency” situations for which no other grant funds are available.
- IU College of Arts and Sciences emergency funding
Small amount of funding available for graduate students. Contact IU Biology Director of Graduate Studies or department chair who, in turn, will contact Associate Dean Padraic Kenney with a description of your circumstances and the amount of financial need. These requests will be reviewed and funds will be disbursed based on urgency of need.
